This would be a really great self improvement app if it had more membership options that are affordable to everyone. The content this app has is hands down awesome, I loved it during the free trial period. The free version is very limited and not worth having in my opinion. There are 2 membership options, The $100/yr plan and the $16/mth plan. A monthly plan is great, but not if you're paying twice the amount. Imagine the results of this app being accessible to the ones less fortunate.

Awesome accidental purchase! I did the 7day trail, and forget to cancel it. But, I'm honestly glad I did. I use it all the time. They sum up books really well and the voice actors are quite pleasant to listen to, of course you can always read the Blinkist instead! One thing I found really cool was that you can 'vote' for titles you would like to see added. All in all, for the amount of time I spend on the app, I prkce is quite reasonable.

The free version gives you one great diary of a book a day. The sumarists are engaging and the ideas are presented in a way that makes you feel as though you've read the content rather than only hearing the main concepts retold. Not every blink is of interest to me but there are enough during a week to feel like I am learning concepts new to me told ina familiar conversational way. I recommend this app for anyone interested in learning new concepts in an engaging time-efficient way.
